Power loss

I have a Toshiba satelite. I love it. However a couple of months or so ago I had a power problem. I discovered the male end of the power supply on the back of the computer had broken loose. I took it into Comp USA where I bought it and they wouldn't repair it!! Without charging me for it. I hadn't had it a year yet plus I purchased an extended warranty!! Anyway I got it repaired locally. I then started expieriencing power loss. The battery would drain even though it was plugged in. I tried removing the battery and it won't operate at all. So I took it back into Comp and they sent it off to be repaired. After a week they sent it back and I took it home. It lasted a day!!!! Then went back to doing the same thing. I turn on the computer and the battery is at full charge but with in a half hour. I am down to nothing. Now it has begun to give problems trying to re-charge the battery. There was a listing stateing that the XP patch might solve it but to no avail. Sorry this is so long any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S. (when i sent it back to comp they replaced or fixed the motherboard.)
